Christmas and New Year are undoubtedly stressful times of year and can often lead to strained relationships reaching breaking point. Relate, one of the UK’s biggest relationship charities, acknowledges that it receives a peak in calls in January and last January received a 24% increase in calls to their helpline compared with the average month. Councillors expect to see a similar peak this year.

At Dodds Solicitors LLP we recognise that the breakdown of a relationship is an extremely difficult and worrying time for everyone which is why we offer an extensive range of matrimonial and divorce services including fixed fee advice appointments, fixed fee divorces (where appropriate) and specialist advice on the financial position for each party, as well as advice on what is often the most important concern; the arrangements for the children.

Often people are concerned about the cost of consulting a solicitor and so to help limit any uncertainty Dodds Solicitors LLP offer a fixed fee initial appointment of £120 (inc vat).
